What is the easiest way to take fan out from KitchenAid Range Hood ventilation from hood?

When I turned on the fan (Range Hood), it works (look like working ) but some noise.
I goes to web and it suggested to change fan motor

Also I got some parts diagram.

But I am not quite sure how the cylinder shaped ventilation fan attached to the range hood.

I purchased Downdraft vent fan blower wheel, Range Hood Fan Motor and Wheel.
So I plan to replace, however I am not sure what is the best way to disassemble.

I am thinking 2 ways
1) Without dismount the whole cylinder shaped ventilation fan part, try disassemble and clean or replace (Using Spacial Driver)
2) Try dismount and then disassemble, I do not know how ventilation cylinder parts attached to the range hood so a bit scarey for this option

Could you please advise?
I attached some pictures.

Thank you Jake

I try to disassemble without dismounting but it is very hard
So I think I need to check more and dismount I guess
though I do not know if this type is drop out type or not.

I have not replaced the motor on this model myself, but If I were too I would just remove all the screws to access it and do it. It will seem difficult at first but will get easier as you go along.
